by chemical weapons, the obama administration was caught on its heels in a foreign policy quandary. america was reminded again that the united states must always be vigilant and embrace an international relations framework which enables proactive engagement rather than merely reactionary crisis response. mr. speaker, i desperately hope that these discussions will proceed in the context of the grave reality the human family will face if nuclear weapons fall into the handles of jihadists in iran. to use the slight hely altered words of our secretary of state, mr. speaker, quote, in a world of terrorists and extremists, we ignore these risks at our peril. we simply cannot afford to have nuclear weapons become the i.e.d. or car bomb of tomorrow. neither our country nor our conscience can bear the costs of inaction. mr. speaker, the u.s.-iran nuclear negotiations act is, quote, an action that will reinforce the prohibition against nuclear weapons development. we're talking about actions that will degrade iran's capacity to use these weapons and ensure that they do not proliferate. with this aut

what they're doing to motivate them. and why the obama administration says it's so important. >> the obama administration wants young people to sign up for obama care -- >> because of my income as a student. >> so now in an effort to woo healthy young people-- the white house is pushing a new study that shows nearly half of uninsured americans between the ages of 18 and 34 can get health insurance plans for less than 50 bucks a month. >> ultimately you need the young healthy people to be enrolled in order to keep the risk pool balanced and insure that you've got affordable premiums in the long run. >> without young people-- premiums could spike - or worse - too many sick, costly patients would be enrolled and the system could fail. but what's the incentive for a young person to sign up? with a problem plauged website -- signing up online has been a headache-- and for someone who is young and completely healthy. they may not feel the need to get insurance. but president barrack obama thinks otherwise. he made his case in a recent interview on fusion-tv. >> i kind of remember w
that the obama administration and obama campaign could realize that the former president is a huge asset for them and perhaps they better make sure that they're working with him and communicating with him. but i think the biggest tidbit everybody is talking about is obviously this switch between hillary clinton and joe biden. but also what i want to know is what's in there about governor chris christie particularly some of the things in his background back when he was working as an sec lobbyist. and a think all of those details will be out shortly and you can no doubt bet people will be looking for clues for the potential gop frontrunner for 2016. >> the book said he did not choose chris christie because he had too many political land mines. so what might be some of the problems he faces if he chooses to run in 2016. >> what's also interesting is that the christie spokesperson put out a statement actually saying that he was very forthcoming with the romney campaign, so they actually issued a response. i think that there are going to be tons of questions everyone's vetted for 2016 as you go throug

with obama care and that's happening, too. the administration points out this is information that's been out there a long time and in a statement today, the white house said in part, these protections will improve the plans that insurance companies offer today unless you're in the same plan that you were in when the law passed which is grandfathered out of these changes. in other words, nothing in the act forces people out of their health plans because the law allows plans that covered people at the time the law was enacted to continue to offer that same coverage to the enrollees. so it's a little bit complicated. there might have been an oversell when trying to get this through. >> a lot of people now who like, presumably liked their plans are being told they're no longer eligible for those plans and getting letters from blue cross, blue shield from kaiser and other companies saying in order to comply with the much more intense requirements of obama care this plan you used to be on no longer exists. >> something like 300,000 people with florida blue alone in the state of florida getting tha

on the planet and the other part of the obama administration can't keep a website up. you almost want to swim responsibilities here. >> switch the two brains. >> could it effectively do the spying on angela merkel and someone else do the website. the obama administration would be in better shape. >> what are the implications of both. how angry are americans about either one. i don't want to go too far into the ac stuff. i think that is the man with two brains. but the idea of collecting metadata on americans. i think there is some people activists, seekers, writers, journalists that are legitimately upset about this. i'm not entirely sure the american public would begin to litigate this. >> i wouldn't go to aca. i don't think that's a good analogy. i do think good analogy to drones, deportation, all these policies that rhetorically, especially when he was running for office first time around he distanced himself from. then all of a sudden, inch by inch, moment by moment, we realized he's doubled down on some of the policies bush and cheney began. the american people, as for their anger, i don
administration is reporting that a weekend crash of the obama care website has now been fixed. things are back up and running again. but up and running is, of course, a relative term. four weeks into the obama care rollout, where does the controversial program stand right now? where is it heading? let's have a serious discussion right now between the "new york times" columnist nicholas kristof and bill kristol. thanks for coming in. do you have an understanding how the administration could screw this up, the signature achievement of president obama, during these past four weeks? >> it's astonishing. i think the republicans completely blew it when they were diverting everybody from this mistake by focusing on the government shutdown and then the obama administration completely blew it by having an absolutely awful rollout and then waiting so long to acknowledge its severity and waiting for the surge. so the only thing i can say is that i think that attention was broken among so many different folks in the obama administration, that there was no single adult really in charge. >> do you have a good
one of the first obama administration officials to be questioned directly by congress in this debacle that has been the obama care website rollout. have a listen to how it went. >> despite our democrats opposition to part d ten years ago, we committed to making the best of the program. and because of all the changes that have occurred in part d prescription program, 90% of seniors right now the are satisfied. and why are they satisfied? well, are in my district, before that was vote, i made seniors know that i was going to vote no and opposed and i told them two reasons. the gap, the doughnut hole when you're paying for premiums you're not getting any benefits. that was horrendous and number two, no one was an outside source was not sitting down and being the third party to the negotiate the prices of prescription drugs. so it lost. we lost the policy fight. and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we're -- we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did. and ho

"wall street journal" reports the president was only made aware of this last summer. conflicting at this point. neither answers is satisfying because either he didn't have enough oversight or he hasn't been entirely forthcoming. d
one week ago from the obama administration's self-labeled war room, where officials focus on implementing the law and their concern is that once the healthcare.gov website glitches are worked out, some consumers will go online and be disappointed with high prices and limited choice. according to the notes from october 28th, quote, mike described a general concern of p.m. or project management, quote, getting to the point where the website is functioning properly and individuals begin to select plans, the media attention will follow individuals to plan selection and their ultimate choices and in some cases, there will be fewer options than would be desired to promote consumer choice and an ideal shopping experience. additionally, in some cases, there will be relatively high cost plans. project management is a reference to those individuals in the obama administration tasked with standing up the affordable health care law at the center for consumer information and insurance oversight. the discussion appeared to be in reference to an october 24th story by the "new york times"

causes and costs of the fiasco. all right. first, tonight, we now know that the obama administration is muzzling insurance companies, telling them to keep quiet about all the canceled policies and increased premiums. also, more democrats are starting to push back against the law. including senator mary landrieu who was working on a bill to allow americans to really keep their own health plans. and congressman darrell issa has subpoenaed secretary sebelius for the information regarding the botched healthcare.gov launch she so far declined to hand over voluntarily. all right. all those stories and more. on "the kudlow report" starting right now. this is just unbelievable. all right. now, we've got all this developing news here to analyze the whole story. we bring in bob lashevski. dr. scott gottlieb joins us, american enterprise resident fellow. and ovik roy, senior fellow at the manhattan institute. gentlemen, welcome. ovik, let yes just start with you. this is a quick one, but i want to get it out. darrell issa subpoenaing sebelius. she won't come clean. he's been asking for document
